In compliance with the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, notification is hereby given that the following executive
directors and directors of major subsidiaries of the Company have accepted the award of ordinary shares in the

The Discovery Long-term incentive plan (LTIP) which was approved by shareholders at the annual general meeting
(AGM) held on 28 November 2019, replaces the cash-settled LTIP with an equity-settled LTIP to align with local
and global best practice in incentivising, motivating and retaining the right calibre of executives and senior
management with the Group. As outlined in the remuneration report of the Integrated Annual Report
(Remuneration report) which was made available to shareholders as part of the AGM notice, the performance
conditions are aligned to the organic growth methodology of the Group and the vesting criteria take account of
the feedback received following shareholder engagement after the 2018 AGM non-binding advisory vote.

Accordingly, the awards accepted by executive directors and directors of major subsidiaries, as contained in this
announcement, will vest from between the 3rd and 5th anniversary of these awards (between 1 October 2022 and
1 October 2024), provided the necessary vesting criteria have been achieved as outlined in the Remuneration

The nature of the interest in respect of each of these awards is direct beneficial, the transactions have occurred
off-market and the necessary clearances have been obtained.
